Snow Update for Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb - Holiday Snow & Terrain Update
Whistler is enjoying a great holiday season with local and destination guests alike enjoying the magic of play with friends and family on our snow covered mountains.

At this time Whistler Blackcomb has over 7,000 acres of terrain open for skiers and riders out of 8,171 –more terrain than any other mountain resort in North America!

Between both mountains all major express chairlifts and gondolas are in operation, weather dependent. Our guests have been skiing and riding groomed, snow covered trails suitable for all abilities, and the ski outs to all base areas - Blackcomb’s Upper Village, Whistler Village and Creekside Village - are providing one vertical mile of skiing from top to bottom. Check out the grooming report, updated daily as well as live lift status here: whistlerblackcomb.com

The snow in the forecast later this week has everyone drooling with anticipation and colder temperatures will enable Whistler Blackcomb’s large team of snowmaking experts to get into high gear to lend a hand to cover the slopes with even more snow.
